You can probably bet the ultimate version of a famous sports car from a discontinued brand is going to be an expensive classic, right? Well this 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA is the rare kind of coupe that is available at an ultra affordable price...for now.
The GTA was the pinnacle of Pontiac performance of the '80s. It could be optioned with an engine related to the Corvette, and it received the biggest tires, biggest brakes, and the best full body kit, including rear wing, to represent all-out performance. 1987 was the first year they offered the now-legendary GTA package, and less than 1,800 were built in white. This is arguably the best color on this coupe just because it makes the standard tinted windows, and tinted rear taillight panel look so bold. For a genuine classic that has past the 25-year-old mark, it also looks remarkably well preserved, with a respray of the original color, blemish-free ground-effects, and the original vented hood that always looks so aggressive. But when a GTA is at the car shows, you know everyone is focused on those cool factory crosslace gold wheels.
Inside is everything you want from an original GTA. It starts with the new bucket seats that include electronic inflatable bolstering for extra comfort in all conditions. The driver gets the three-spoke steering wheel, with the proper GTA-specific badging. Beyond that are a full set of clear analogue gauges. Because this was the top-of-the-line car for Pontiac, this one is loaded. This includes power windows, power locks, power steering, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo. Everything is original and working right down to the cold-blowing air conditioning.
There was one option everyone looks for in the GTA, and it's the Corvette-derived L98. This one was ordered with the upgrade direct from the Norwood, Ohio plant, and it still resides under the hood today. The fuel-injected V8 has been kept in original condition, and you know it has been well cared for, averaging less than 2,100 miles a year over its lifetime. GM's 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was a good paring because its stout nature can handle the power and torque produced by the upgraded engine. Plus, it's quick shifting nature, and overdrive setup, made it versatile for everything from street to highway use. But besides the drivetrain, the GTA was the king of the streets because it received the WS6 suspension as standard. This is the package that kept the Trans Am on top of enthusiast lists through the 70s and 80s, and the GTAs were quiet about this big upgrade with only little indicators like on the centercap of the wheels. Speaking of the wheels, this one includes four-wheel disc brakes and grippy Yokohama tires for excellent performance.
This first-year Trans Am GTA has always been treated with the classic status it deserves. That's why it comes with the factory buildsheet, original bill of sale, warranty card, owner's manual, and maintenance records. Hard to believe this full package is available for under $15K...You know it won't be this affordable, or available, forever. Call today!!
